Beautiful wedding destination

My close friend just recently had her wedding there and the ocean view in the background as they exchanged vows was breathtaking.

Can be a busy place, but it is a lovely view spot for a picnic or just to sit. Small beach in the cove keeps little ones busy. Some take kayaks out of there. At the grill area one can rent a bicycle to take on the nearby trail -which is a fantastic place to ride along the coast.

It's a fun beach park with a great jogging/biking trail to Cannery Row. You can rent bikes there, picnic, bbq, hang out on the sand, watch lots of ocean life and relax.

Unexpectedly beautiful, rocky coastline. Lots of rocks to climb on and get fabulous views and photos.

We were here on a beautiful sunny day in March, but the wind made it chilly. This community park is located at Ocean View Blvd. and 17th Street and is used for picnicking, fishing, swimming, and water sports. Lover's Point has a large lawn area, beach volleyball, a children's swimming pool, sandy beaches, rocky areas with ground squirrels, a concrete... More

Beautiful area. Saw a Harbor Seal playing. Saw a dead sea lion here and 3 at Asilomar. I guess they are starving because global warming is making the water too warm for the fish the sea lions eat so they swim elsewhere and the sea lions are starving. Lover's Point is a great place to bring the family or just... More

Wonderful grassy park that has amazing views of the Monterey Bay. Also has a beautiful, soft white sand beach that is family-friendly. Plenty of tide pools to explore too.

One of my go-to favorite places to go. I've been coming to spot every since I was a child and still brings great joy for me to visit this place. A couple of years ago, they removed the public restrooms and with the amount of people that visit this location, I'm a little surprised that they haven't rebuild another facility.... More
